Education and Social

One of the main work of our magazine create awerness in the following educationl and social issues ;

Gender Problem

One of the social issues raised in education is differentiation on the basis of sex. Girls have lesser opportunities, compared to boys for studying, in certain sections of the society. Expectations from girls to score high in studies or study further, are less too.

Social Problem

Some social issues arise due to the economic division a student belongs to Students, who belong to poor families, go to public schools which are not so well equipped with technology and teaching learning process. This automatically puts them at a disadvantage, when compared to the students who go to some good private schools.

Cultural Problem

Students belonging to from one region to another may not be well versed with Amharic and English language. This creates a barrier in communication between students and teachers and thus, such students are not able to receive proper education.

Economic problem

The basic economic problem is that resources are scarce relative to the purposes to which they could be put. As a result choices have to be made about how to use resources. The basic economic problem is thus frequently referred to as 'scarcity and choice'. A resource is a means of support. A resource from the point of view of business studies can be regarded as any feature of our environment that helps to support our well-being.

Faction problem

Faction refers to groups of friends that exclude other people. Faction usually has codes of behavior -- such as requirements to dress a certain way or play a certain sport -- and tend to focus on status and popularity. Faction often harasses or insult outsiders. Belonging to a faction can be stressful and harmful too, because faction often discourages members from socializing with anyone else and require members to act a certain way to fit in.

The above core problems are leads to the following negative statement.

Peer Pressure

Peer pressure occurs when students try to influence each other's decisions. Peer pressure can be positive; for example, a student could remind her/his friend about the math homework or encourage him/her to go out for a sports team. However, peer pressure is often negative, such as pressure to drink alcohol, smoke cigarettes, chewing Khat, cut class, cheat on a test or shoplift. Students often find it difficult and stressful to refuse peer pressure.

Maltreatment

Maltreatment occurs when a person is repeatedly picked on by someone more powerful than he/she is. Students, who have an unusual appearance, are a different competition or belief. Maltreatment can be physical, such as beating or elegant, or verbal, such as hurtful or joking. Boys and girls can both be oppress or maltreatment victims. Maltreatment often causes problems with schoolwork, health and self-esteem.

Sexual Abuse

Initiation of sexual activity was not associated with being male when other factors were adjusted. Studies showed that males become sexually active at a younger age than females. It’s also known that student sexual abuse usually occurs by someone the child knows and trusts.  It can take place within the family, by a parent, step-parent, sibling or other relative or family friend.  It can also occur outside the home, i.e., by a friend, neighbor, day care person, teacher, clergy member, coach, baby sitter, or even a stranger. When sexual abuse has occurred, a child can develop a variety of distressing feelings, thoughts and behaviors.

Physical abuse

There is no tangible statistics on physical abuse in related to students, it is estimated hundreds of thousands of students are physically abused each year by a parent or a close relative. Often the severe emotional damage does not surface until adolescence or later, when many abused children become abusing parents. An adult who was abused as a child often has trouble establishing intimate personal relationships. These men and women may have trouble with physical closeness, touching, intimacy, and trust as adults. They are also at higher risk for anxiety, depression, substance abuse, medical illness, and problems at school or work.
